THIS IS A PIXEL/PIXEL 2 MOD FOR THE NEXUS 5X RUNNING ANDROID OREO 8.0 and 8.1 (OPR4 and OPP5)

I am VERY excited to introduce to you some new Pixel 2 features! This begins the era of Pixel 2 mods. While much work remains to be done on Android Oreo, even with features in the first Pixels, this is an exciting development. Check out those screenshots and make sure to check out the animated clock icon;) Here's my Pixel Mod/PIXEL 2 MOD built for Android Oreo! :highfive: The current status of this mod is still a work in progress. Currently I am in between 8.0 and 8.1 so please pay close attention to what you are downloading. As 8.1 is going to be the upcoming official release, much of my focus will be on that. Currently the mod for 8.1 (OPP5) has been released and includes new features such as new wallpapers, Google Lens, and Always On Display!

Important piece here. Anything flashed is flashed at your own risk. I have not and will not release anything that I have not flashed myself. The only exception to this is the Pixel Mod for the 5X being that I don't own a 5X. However, I only release that after testing the mod on the 6P and recreating, exactly, the mod for the 5X. Regardless, you should always backup before flashing anything. Better safe than sorry. Also, anything posted in these comments is not endorsed/approved by me. This is a community; users are free to post what they want. Often times, users are very supportive and helpful. I appreciate the community involvement 100%. However, I cannot test and allow everything else posted here. Users are free to post at will. Using any form of mod posted in comments is 100% at your risk too, and just like with my mod, users should backup first. That being said, community involvement pushes learning forward. Mods such as this progress as quickly as they do thanks to community involvement and testing. To everyone who has asked questions, tested, and contributed I give you a huge thanks. :good:

If you intend on using Substratum, don't flash this mod. I'm working on a simple work around for this.
So as always, make a backup before flashing. I do not have an uninstaller zip made. The best way to uninstall is to backup your system.img in TWRP and restore if to remove the mod.

Common Questions/Issues & Answers/Solutions

Tinted Nav Bar? Pixel Nav Bar Animation?
-Not yet, still roadblocked on that one. Not giving up though.

Pixel Launcher is crashing repeatedly after flashing this mod!
-Go into settings from your quick settings and grant Pixel Launcher notification access.

Not all icons are round?
The problem seems to be in the versions of those apps. Android Oreo (Official Version) seems to have less issues than the Previews had

Substratum?
-This mod may break Substratum. If you want to use Substratum don't flash this mod. If you have, then just reflash your system.img to return to stock. If you want substratum, go here https://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-6p/themes-apps/tutorial-android-oreo-pixel-mod-t3663727.

Notification Dots aren't working?!
-Make sure to enable the Notification Dots too. Go into the Pixel Launcher Settings (tap and hold like if you were adding a widget or changing a wallpaper). In the settings there is a category "Notification Dots". Even if it says "On" tap on it. Make sure "Allow Notification Dots" is on. Mine will do a little glitch like I repeatedly tapped it. I think it's just a bug in the Preview version of Pixel Launcher. But that should bring you the Dots if you don't have it.

Weather is not showing!
-Make sure to grant Pixel Launcher location access. Then give it some time. If you don't want to wait, swiping into Google Now and clicking on the weather seems to force refresh the weather widget on your homescreen.

No Option to Change Photo Upload Quality?
Unlimited Photo Storage was supported for a short amount of time before Google patched the mod. The current mod (OPR5_Pixel2_Mod--6p-V2 / 6th Edition) returned the ability to select photo upload quality. However, clearing data for the Photos app may be necessary. Just wipe data from settings for the app


6th Edition / 7th Edition

-TO-DO LIST-
-Always On Display
-Navigation Bar Animation
-Substratum Compatibility
-Original Accent Color Mod (Should help with Substratum Compatibility)
-Lowered DPI Navigation Bar Mod
-Black Android Oreo Boot Animation (Currently using stock Android Oreo Boot Animation)
-Integration Boot Sound (Have to find out where it moved to. Sound isn't in the same spot as it was in Nougat)
-Converting to Aroma Installer for Customized Features

-Possibly developing app to better integrate Pixel Mods with Android Oreo's native theme support
-The Pixels (Pixel & Pixel XL) themselves actually use (in a sense) a Pixel Mod. As of Android O (beginning in the previews) the Pixels have basically the exact same setup as the 6P and 5X. However, in the vendor partition they have a Pixel Theme (called Pixel.apk). This actually visible in the apps list. If you have a Pixel on Android Oreo. Go to your installed apps and view system apps. Look for Pixel.apk. That is the pixel theme, much like Substratum Themes. Now the Pixels basically use an overlay (using Android Oreo's native theme support). The 6P has the exact same compatibility. However, installation is a bit complicated. If I or someone else could develop an app to place the files+folders in the Vendor folder and run the ADB commands, it would make Pixel Mod's much less complicated and allow complete substratum compatibility.​

Perhaps I answered my own question. I "dirty flashed" 'OCT_OPR4_Pixel_Mod_5X' over
an 'Android+OPR6+Pixel+Mod+5X' installation on my N5X without flashing the 'system.img' to clear out the older version of the mod..

The mod appears to work fine, just as before on the prior version of the mod. In the launcher setting under About, the version remains 'OMR1-4113793'. Is this the correct version?

Tnx.Shoud I just remove Framework-res.apk from the zip or everything else except launcher?What feature I lose without flashing Framework-res.apk?
I'd just remove the framework-res.apk. That'll be a quick solution. Everything else holds the wallpapers app, nav bar buttons, your boot animation, and Pixel audio mod.

Removing the framework will remove the Pixel Blue Accent, Night mode, and Round icons. Although in the Pixel Launcher settings you can enable the round Icon shape to have these. The flaw with that is your icons won't be found in everything such as your recents. They'll just be round in the launcher

Just pushed an update and tested on my 6P. Planning on bringing everything over for the 5X within 24 hours. It's 3:30AM, my time so sleep is the plan now. I want to bring Unlimited Photos ASAP to this thread. I have it working on the 6P, or so it appears. Photos uploaded on a Pixel don't count against your storage. If logic works then if you get a bunch of photos backed up and Google patches the Unlimited Photos mod, the photos that were already backed up shouldn't count against storage limits, so I'm going to bring that ASAP

    Just wanted to let everyone know that for OPP5 (Android 8.1 on the 6P) I brought new wallpapers, Google Lens, and Always On Display. Sadly for 8.1 only at the time. Hope to do the same for the 5X within 24-36 hours
    14
    Released a version for 8.1. Thanks for being patient. There are a few kinks to work out. I've just mirrored the work that I did for the 6P. Battery life is an issue for AOD. Fair warning. That's just how Always On Display works, and it's not a bug. I haven't had a whole lot of time to work out bugs since I released this for the 6P, but hopefully should now that I'm much less sick, thankfully. This is only for 8.1 OPP5. November update for 8.0 will come soon

    I'm working on an update. Been pretty slammed with life recently and have been pretty sick the last few days. But no worries, I haven't abandoned this mod
    9
    Just finished with an update for November on the 6P. 5X work starts tomorrow. Been pretty busy with school, work, life, and finances. I apologize for such a slow rollout. But I appreciate the patience for those on the November update. December will be better and I'm hoping for a nice smooth transition between 8.1 DP and the official release of 8.1
